been in california for a while working on a particular proposition that passed in california this week, with the elections in the senate in the house and states across the country come increasingly these ballot measures are becoming important. >> prop. 36 was an amazing moment for california and also for the nation. as you may know, california has had the most draconian three strikes law in america. under california law, until election day, it was the case that you could get a third strike that would put you in jail for life, even if the third strike was petty or non-violent, like stealing a slice of pizza or stealing sox. these are cases where people got life sentences. so the california voters, god bless him, have made a victory -- a major victory for the country. a petty or non-run defense cannot put you in prison for life. going forward, there are 35 people in california whose sentences will now be revisited, people whose life sentences will be far proved. and there thousands more who would have gone life sentences for completely petty and nonviolent crimes and now won't. it is hum
electorate. here in california, big win for governor jerry brown and his proposition 30, brings relief to scho schools. >> californians made the courageous decision to protect our schools and colleges and strengthen the california dream. bl >> belva: and a win-win for california democrats with an apparent two-thirds super majority in the legislature and the ability to raise taxes without votes from republicans. >> i promise that we will exercise this new power with strength but also with humility and with reason. >> belva: also, author maya angelou shares her story and warm words of wisdom about the meaning of friendship. >> it keeps you alive. it keeps you awake. it keeps you trying to be the best. >> belva: coming up next. . >>> hello, i'm belva davis, and welcome to "this week in northern california." joining me on this special night, my last, as host here are jill tucker, "san francisco chronicle". lisa vor der brugen, "bay area news group." paul rogers, environment writer for "san jose mercury news." and carla marinucci, "san francisco chronicle," senior political reporter. carla,
for higher taxes. voters in california chooses to increase their own taxes over the threats from the governor to shorten the school year. we should make it shorter to save taxpayers money everywhere. i am cheryl casone. we have tracey and john and wapeand julian. and tracey. john, you say shorten the school year before raising taxes. what is the problem? >> you know me. i am all about the kids. i am all about the taxpayers, too. we know that public schools have been a failure and short of privatizing them, best thing to do cut them 25 percent. that would be a good start. not only help the kids but improve their education and help the taxpayers who wouldn't be forced to continue to participate in a failing system. >> tracey is all about the kids. yawn thon -- johnathon. >> watch out big bird. i can't believe we are talking about imposing on our children the gross mistakes the adults have made. the education system is not a total failure. there are definitely issues with it but the choice of putting a kid in the classroom or letting them in the street and getting arrested. and that is it a no b
, the cold front that is about to hit us up here means hot dry winds in state of california. that fact is no stranger to people here on the panel. it doesn't take much to fan hot, dry vegetation that has been soaking in that hot sun. when i say soaking, it means it gets the moisture level so low where it's kindling in the forest. you have more people moving in, more vegetation growing, it's a recipe for nature trying to do its thing and people in the way. so with this, it takes a lot of support whether we're talking about the fire lines, behind the fire lines or been above the fire lines to provide that support. it takes a whole mix of people whether it's the department of defense and even fema having roles to play in that. bob fenton, the assistant chief of fema, used to be the division chief in division 9. he is no stranger to this area, born and raised here, this is his home and so he does have a care and an interest in this community and beyond. and so with that it is hard to fill being his replacement at the regional level because not only to fill his shoes all the great work

and i am proud that the president went yesterday to california to dedicate the cesar chavez national monument. many of us worked in colleagues in the congress to support the foundation that built the monument but he by executive order declared it a national monument and i am glad that check alieo and his son and some members of the community were there. such a big turnout they had to turn people away and such a great source of pride. aren't we proud of that? [applause] and aren't we proud of our president. some of these things -- the passage of the dream act, support for the monument for series series and so many things mentioned by the great mayor were only possible of the leadership in our congress of the hispanic caucus. and i am pleased to say in this election year we have the opportunity and i think we will send ten more members to congress to be part of the congress and that's an increase of about 50% of the caucus and four of them will be from california, so we're very, very proud that california leads the way. as the mayor talked about the contribution it's easy to unders

california as we are now but eventually southern california, one of the most effective ways to stop the fires from growing is that initial attack, which means we need to be able to quickly put resources up in the air and move them. i guess my question is from a national guard perspective, from a naval perspective, with the helicopter resources down there, do you feel you would be able to quickly move those resources and you have the agreements in place. we'll start with the national guard and work on our way down. >> although we're advertised as a one week a month and two weekends a year, i've got crews on pretty much every day and if cal fire calls i can get crews out in just a matter of hours. we did do that about two months ago, the robbers fire, and it worked out real well. cal fire went in real aggressive and put out the fire in a short period of time. so there's no issue with us being immediately available, we've got our buckets, crew trained. >> as an example of that, 2007 we saw -- 2003 we had the cedar fire and we all thought the cedar fire in 2003 was a fluke. it was the first m
number of assets, the number of people trained to do these things are. the california national guard has air and land assets that are substantial and can be rapidly deployed to assist the civil responders in their mission to move people, to get things set up, to establish common security. it's a partnership that really needs to happen and is natural. the governor controls the california national guard, he can make forces appear very rapidly in support of a regional disaster, a local emergency or wherever they are needed, and transportation, communication, security logistics capabilities that come to the table really augment the medical care that's being provided in the disaster scene. >> like colonel ingels, i was impressed by the robust, defined chain of command and a large response capable of being produced. however, in an overwhelming disaster things don't always go as planned and certainly our experiences in combat has showed us there and prior experience with disasters have outlined that even though there's a well-defined system of response it doesn't always work out. wha
